We go Bah-Bah over Sheep Nursery Décor April 19 2013

One of the sweetest classic themes in nursery décor is the quintessential little lamb. So classic. So perfect for your little one. We just couldn’t help taking notice of so many beautiful baby nurseries incorporating this theme! Aside from being simple and sweet, we appreciate the gender and color neutrality the sheep design element brings to a baby’s room. Since most sheep come in white, you can add almost any accent color of your liking. For example, see this lovely grey and white sheep themed nursery designed for Charlotte in Austin, TX. The rich, elegant furnishings from Restoration Hardware Baby and Child bring a classic touch to a relatively modern color scheme. For a bolder look, consider black and white sheep décor as highlighted by Joni Lay on BHG.com. Bold, black accents such as the lamp and dresser shown in this inspiration board can make quite an impact. And, babies are attracted to high contrast colors which make this nursery that much more attractive. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="480" caption="Baa Baa Black Sheep - Better Homes & Gardens"]black sheep nursery[/caption] For a softer, more classic look, see how entertaining and lifestyle expert Jenny Steffens Hobick used pale blue and classic lamb décor from Pottery Barn Kids to decorate her lamb themed baby room. We especially like the lamb rocker—just darling! [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="483" caption="Emma's Nursery - Jenny Steffens Hobick"]lamb nursery[/caption] And, weeDECOR has several sheep wall decal designs to help augment your nursery décor. Our jumping sheep wall decal has three little sheep jumping over fences onto blades of grass. We also have a personalized sheep decal to make your baby’s nursery feel even more unique.

Just Discovered! Little Auggie for a Fresh Modern Nursery Look March 12 2013

We just discovered Little Auggie and had to share. Little Auggie is the creation of Toronto sisters Genevieve and Cristina. Genevieve is the creative genius behind the illustrations while Cristina is the brains behind the business. What a great combo this makes! [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="477" caption="Pony Love Nursery - Little Auggie"]pony nursery[/caption] We were struck by the simplicity of Little Auggie’s designs which pack such a powerful punch. Their take on a baby boy nursery blue is a bright pale blue bordering on aqua in a collection aptly named “Felix” for the cute little puppies sprinkled on the linens. Natasha is their take on girl’s nursery bedding as they boldly proclaim lilac as the “new pink”. The yellow and grey accents also add a touch of modern to the design. And, their matryoshka doll illustration is a nice change from traditional butterflies, flowers, and birds that you see in many girl bedding designs. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="514" caption="Natasha Crib Sheet - Little Auggie"]matryoshka nursery[/caption] Little Auggie carries toddler bedding as well as layette sets and sleep sacks with the same fresh, modern look. And, they even have an adult line of bedding incorporating many of the modern design principles in their baby and kids line. See their quilts, pillows, and sheets if you’re looking to freshen up your bedroom. What’s more, Little Auggie’s products are made of luxurious 200 percale colorfast cotton in India.

It's a Jungle in There! See These Inspiring Jungle Themed Nurseries. January 30 2012 3 Comments

[caption id="attachment_4771" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="Go gender-neutral with a jungle themed nursery."]animals.wall decals.nursery decor.[/caption] [caption id="attachment_4772" align="alignnone" width="427" caption="This cute and cozy nursery is a great place to spend some time with your wee one"]wall decals.nursery decor.animals[/caption] Lions and tigers and fun are found in these fabulous nurseries. From the bedding to the decals to the organization, a jungle-themed room gives parents loads of great decor options. Just add furniture and a baby and you're all set! This mom and dad created a gender-neutral nursery using a beautiful paint color, adorable bedding, and super-creative use of our wall decals. Mom and dad coated the walls with Benjamin Moore's Country Green to give the room a soft, soothing feel. They outfitted the bed with Sleepin' Safari bed cribbing from Land of Nod. With colorful animals appliqued on the quilt and bumper, this was a great choice that accents the wall color perfectly. The piece de resistance in this nursery is the fantastic wall decor found over the crib. File this under...wall decals, they're not just for walls anymore! Mom and dad created their own custom artwork featuring some of our favorite decals. A cuddly blue elephant starts the parade, followed by a stately giraffe and lion. A lumbering hippo and darling little turtle round out the animal train. Carefully placed on wooden canvases, these one-of-a-kind pieces are modern enough for the room and timeless enough to be passed down the the grandchildren. We are, once again, blown away by the creativity of moms and dads everywhere! [caption id="attachment_4774" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="Nathan's little buddy hangs around under his name."]personalized wall decal. monkey wall decal. jungle wall decal[/caption] [caption id="attachment_4775" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="A friendly animal parade stretches end-to-end over Nathan's crib."]animal themed nursery. jungle wall decals. animal wall decals.[/caption] This New York City mom went with a jungle theme in her little boy's nursery, and the results are incredible! Benjamin Moore's Grey Cashmere blankets the wall and provides a lovely backdrop for that Ouef Sparrow crib in white. Minimalist bedding provides some leeway to jazz up the walls with adorable decals, and that's just what mom did! She chose two complimentary decal designs to bring some fun to her little boy's room. Mom used our safari wall decal mural to create a little parade across the wall. A handsome giraffe leads the way followed by his charming safari friends. It's only appropriate that the turtle acts as the caboose in this animal train!  Mom chose to personalize her son's room with out premium personalized monkey wall decal. We just love how that mischievous little monkey looks ready to drop in on the fun as well! Mom tells us, "The Safari wall decals match perfectly with the furniture and the Cloud B Monkey Sleep Machine and Tiny Love Sweet Island Dreams mobile!  We love them and so does everyone else that's come by to see it!" We couldn't agree more! This is a great example of two great looks that look great together. Fantastic job, mom! See how other moms and dads decked out their nurseries with weeDECOR wall decals on our blog. You'll find more fantastic ideas for animal themed nurseries and much, much more.

Bring the Chic with Chevron in your Baby Nursery January 26 2012 1 Comment

I think we owe Missoni and Target a big "Thank You" for reminding all of us about the fabulousness that chevron has to offer in attire and decor. A little bold, a little zany, and totally unexpected, this print is popping up here, there, and everywhere thanks to a popularity boost of late. We've found some cute and creative ideas for moms and dads who wish to indulge in this latest trend. [caption id="attachment_4763" align="alignnone" width="540" caption="Of-the-moment color combination plus of-the-moment print = one gorgeous nursery"]chevron.nursery.wall[/caption] Let's start with the walls, shall we? Two great trends come together in this gorgeous nursery. The choice of grey and white for the walls somehow manages to make the chevron print look more understated because it allows the yellow to truly stand out. We love that this mom and dad decided to go chevron on one wall only. It keeps the project manageable it you're a do-it-yourselfer. There is something about that buttery yellow that softens the crisp lines of the chevron print. We're swooning over here! [caption id="attachment_4764" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="Chevron in the Crib"]crib bedding.chevron.yellow.grey[/caption] Here is another great example of a grey/yellow/white that incorporates chevron prints. This look is slightly more subtle, as the bold print is kept to the bedding only and the rest of the decor is clean and simple. The crib becomes a stunning focal point of this room, and it certainly deserves the spotlight! This crib bedding by Carousel Designs is absolutely adorable, and the trim on the crib skirt is the icing on the cake. [caption id="attachment_4765" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="Chevron is the perfect backdrop for these cute critters."]chevron.nursery.wall decor[/caption] Thinking of an animal-themed nursery? This wall decor we found on Etsy would make such a fabulous addition to your wee one's room. Cute little critters seem to leap from a chevron background, and the color combinations are just perfect. Lined up above the crib, what baby wouldn't want to gaze up at these fun prints? This is an easy, affordable way to add chevron to your nursery. [caption id="attachment_4766" align="alignnone" width="540" caption="Make a statement with a chevron rug"]Chevron rug.nursery decor[/caption] Can't forget the floors, can we? If you're looking to add some drama to your nursery or kid's room, this fun and funky rug might be the perfect find for you! The colors in this room are absolutely stunning. Who would have ever thought that a palette of turquoise, green, black, and white would produce such gorgeous results? The modern feel of the design elements here is the thread that ties all of the pieces together, and no individual piece seems to scream, "Look at me!"  This room is the embodiment of harmonious design. [caption id="attachment_4767" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="Interesting colors, interesting prints"]chevron.nursery.rug[/caption] Here is another fabulous example of a unique color combination coupled with beautiful prints. This mom and dad opted for a kinder, gentler chevron rug. White and pale aqua take turns making their way from top to bottom and the overall look is borderline subtle. Toss is some bright, contrasting colors via linens and wall decor and you have an amazing nursery that has it all! Love this! [caption id="attachment_4768" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="Outfit your wee one in chevron."]chevron.baby.clothes[/caption] Still hesitant about chevron? We know, we know. It's bold, it can be wild, it's not for everyone. If you can't commit to the use of chevron in your nursery decor, how about a sleeper? Your little one will look absolutely fabulous in this chevron one-piece. Still not sold on chevron after a month or two? No worries, your baby will outgrow it before you can possibly tire of such a fun print. We have so many ideas of both contemporary and traditional nursery decor on our blog.

New and Old Coalesce in this Fab Neutral Nursery January 12 2012

[caption id="attachment_4751" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="This Canadian mom mixes vintage elements into a modern nursery."]Minimalism.Vintage.Nursery.Decor[/caption] [caption id="attachment_4752" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="Our whimsical tree wall decal in white is subtle and stately at the same time."]modern.vintage.nursery[/caption] [caption id="attachment_4753" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="Eye-catching stripes create an accent wall."]Wallpaper.Vintage photos[/caption] If you follow our blog, you already know that one of the biggest recent trends in nursery décor is minimalism. Moms and dads are being more practical in their selection of paint colors, fabrics, and furniture so that their baby can grow in to, not out of, his or her room. In an effort to save time and money, many parents are moving away from babyish nurseries and designing simpler, sophisticated spaces that will withstand the test of time. Another latest and greatest trend in nurseries everywhere is vintage décor. Nurseries that incorporate vintage elements are popping up everywhere, and there are websites dedicated to retro room design for babies and kids. Meaning, there is plenty of inspiration out there for parents who are searching for a whimsical, nostalgic feel in their home. While these two styles (minimalist and vintage) may seem to be in stark contrast to one another, a Canadian mom found a way to effortlessly incorporate elements from each in her baby boy’s room. The result? A playful space that is that exudes sophistication and eludes the kitsch factor that can come into play when decorating with vintage pieces. Mom tells us, “We modeled the nursery after a more modern aesthetic. We wanted a room for our baby boy that was both functional and stylish that would grow with him and that didn't scream baby room! The first item that we chose for the nursery was the fabric for the custom curtains that we had made. We fell in love with the modern chic print and the colors.” We are in love with those curtains too, Mom! The muted colors are a perfect pairing with the print. For the wall color, these parents turned to the perennial favorite, Benjamin Moore, and selected Collingwood OC-28, a soft dove grey color that provides a subtle backdrop for the wall decor. But this couple didn’t stop there! They decided to create a stunning accent wall using masculine striped wallpaper designed Graham & Brown and ordered from Home Depot. This unique attribute adds so much visual interest to the room without overpowering the other features. On to the furniture! Mom writes, “The crib and dresser/change table combo is from Cara Mia Furniture and the custom upholstered glider chair is from Monte.” The contrast between the rich color of the furniture and the soft grey walls is just stunning! The stately crib is softened up with Dwell transportation bedding and organic duvet cover. And of course, no nursery or kid’s room is complete without unique wall accents and accessories. Enter weeDECOR! Mom found the perfect spot for our whimsical white tree wall decal. In keeping with a modern, minimalist feel, she chose white for a clean, crisp look. Mom tells us, “Other wall decor is made up of some vintage prints from our families and pictures taken during the pregnancy and shortly after our son's birth. All are mounted in frames created by Maclean Young Picture Framers. The lighting is a mixture of vintage finds and a custom ceiling fixture. The toy bins are from 3 Sprouts Organics and there is an assortment of vintage stuffed animals (original authentic Paddington Bear) and new finds!” This is a mom who knows how to mix different design elements and strike a balance between 2 competing décor trends. Vintage and minimalist pieces coalesce to create a stylish and unique room that will be enjoyed for years. Great job, Mom! You are an inspiration! For even more inspiration, see other customer photos on our blog. You can also check out our Pinboards on Pinterest for fabulous nursery decor finds.

Out with the Old, in With the...Old? Vintage is Back with a Vengeance January 05 2012

The year 2012 is barely off the ground and we’re already seeing some fabulous trends emerging for nurseries everywhere! Inspired by the traditions and customs of simpler times, moms and dads are going vintage with their nursery décor. We’ve found some incredible design elements that will bring a sense of nostalgia to your nursery without compromising the modern conveniences or the safety of your wee ones. [caption id="attachment_4746" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="This beautiful bedding is reminscent of popular dress patterns of the 1920s."][/caption] Serena & Lily is a company that is well-known for stunning bedding and room décor, and their Collette bedding collection doesn’t disappoint. Designers looked back almost 100 years to find the inspiration for this bedding. French dress prints from the 20’s served as the influence for this gorgeous crib set with its quirky, vintage look that is updated with a contemporary pink/gray color combination. While this collection embraces the look of nurseries past, rest assured that the linens were made with high-quality cotton sateen. A retro look and modern luxury? Sounds like a win-win to us! [caption id="attachment_4747" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="Extraordinary details set this crib apart."]Poster Iron Crib from Posh Tots[/caption] The perfect vintage bedding demands an equally-appealing bed, don’t you think? Safety standards for cribs have changed drastically over the years, so this is one area where authentic vintage may not by the best route. Luckily, vintage-look cribs are popping up everywhere. One of our favorites is this poster iron crib from Posh Tots. The intricate detailing is positively swoon-worthy and reminiscent of cribs from long ago. The stationary sides and varying mattress positions will save your back and give you peace of mind, as will Posh Tots’ guarantee that the crib meets all current safety standards. [caption id="attachment_4748" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="This super-creative design element won't break the bank."]Vintage Nursery Decor[/caption] Now, on to the décor! We love this idea found on Design Dazzle. A mom scored some darling vintage dresses from a clothing store that was shutting down and, with the help of some twine, added softness and dimension to her daughter’s walls. So clever! This is proof that designing a nursery with a vintage theme does not have to break the bank! Shop your local flea market for some inspiration and adorable accents. Adding vintage touches to your nursery is just one way to personalize your little one's room. For more fantastic ideas for nursery decor, see our customer photos.

So Elegant, So Refined...A Classic Nursery with a Stunning Wall Decal Border December 18 2011

[caption id="attachment_4718" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="Inspired by some of our favorite designs, these wall decals were custom-made by weeDECOR."]Inspired by some of our favorite designs, these wall decals were custom-made for an Atlanta mom.[/caption] [caption id="attachment_4719" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="A few of our favorite things displayed above baby's crib."][/caption] [caption id="attachment_4720" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="Nursery closet organization at its finest!"]closet organization[/caption] This Atlanta mom poured her heart and soul into the design of an incredible nursery for her baby boy. Iconic symbols of babyhood are remastered into contemporary, sophisticated elements that bring a sense of refinement to this stunning room. We love how the soft baby blue walls are toughened up a bit with the steely gray curtain panels that could easily see Ian through the teen years. The Preston crib bedding set by CoCaLo seems to be just the right shade of blue as well and is paired beautifully with the rich brown in the furniture. Mom chose furniture from Baby's Dream's Legendary collection to serve as statement pieces for the room. The graceful curve of the top of the crib gives this piece a positively regal feel. For the walls, mom approached weeDECOR to create some custom wall decals to create a wall border that would bring a little bit of whimsy to the nursery while maintaining an elegant feel overall. Inspired by our existing  rocking horse, bear, and classic train engine wall stickers, our designers made some slight modifications to achieve just the right look for this wall decal border for mom. But we didn't stop there! Our designers also custom-made baby block wall decals reminiscent of the ABC blocks nightlight that mom found at Pottery Barn and placed on a side table next to that comfy-looking rocker by Dutailer. In a few shades darker than the wall color, the decals are subtle and bring a little bit of fun to the walls. From the looks of his closet, it appears that Ian is going to be the best-dressed baby on the block! Mom turned to Home Depot's Martha Stewart line of closet storage and organization in preparation of baby's arrival. With so many fabulous clothes, a little organization is key. This set up is borderline mind-blowing! Onesies to the left, jackets to the right, sleepers in the middle...this closer is pure perfection! Once again, we are so proud that some of the savviest, most stylish parents out there use weeDECOR wall decals in fabulous nurseries everywhere. We have so many examples of gorgeous nursery decor on our blog. Whether you're decorating for a boy or girl, you are sure to find inspiration from both professional designers and super-creative moms and dads alike.

Look Out! Look Out! It's an Elephant Wall Applique Parade! December 10 2011

[caption id="attachment_4711" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="Adorable elephants march along a crib and over a window."][/caption] This Ontario mom found some darling animal-themed bedding and decided to carry the motif over to her walls. Starting with the wall color, she found a glorious shade of blue reminiscent of the sky on the clearest spring day. When it came time to choose decals, mom found the perfect design in our modern elephants wall decal. She wanted a shade that would really pop against the blue walls and asked us to create some custom colors for her. At weeDECOR, "wee" are happy to oblige your requests! We created white elephants with floppy blue ears that were true to the original design in an eye-catching color that doesn't get lost against the blue walls. The elephant family that marches above the crib is just too cute! For even more fun, mom created her own mini-elephant parade above the window. And what does this mom think about the finished product? She tells us, "You did custom elephants for us, and I think they look great above the crib and window! Thanks so much for your custom work and your reasonably priced shipping-not so common these days." Thank YOU, mom, for making weeDECOR a special part of your wee one's room. We love it! [caption id="attachment_4713" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="Our elephant wall stickers join some friends in this elephant parade."][/caption] Elephants might be our new favorite nursery theme! This Connecticut couple found Carter's Blue Elephant bedding set for the crib, and that's just where the fun started! The collection includes some super-cute accent pieces as well. From the baby blanket over the chair to the valance in the window, elephant adorableness abounds in this nursery! To add some interest to the wall space that flanks the window,  these parents selected our modern elephants wall sticker in brown/pale blue. Our elephants are not shy! They took their places at the beginning  and end of this elephant parade and fit right in with their Carter's counterparts. Mom and Dad definitely have a knack for incorporating our wall decals in a cute and clever way. Great job! Love the idea of an animal-themed nursery? Check out our animal wall decals and prepare to be bombarded with cuteness. Our blog is loaded with decorating ideas for nurseries and kids rooms, so be sure to take a peek if you're in need of a little inspiration.

Up, Up, & Away with this Gorgeous Hot Air Balloon Wall Mural December 03 2011 1 Comment

[caption id="attachment_4703" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="Mom, Dad, and weeDECOR custom created this wall sticker mural for their little one."][/caption] Balloons, birds, and blue combine to create one gorgeous wall decal mural for an equally gorgeous baby! We were approached by a San Francisco couple to design wall decor that would bring their vision of a perfect nursery to life. Dad proposed to mom in a hot air balloon (awwww....) so they though it fitting to design the nursery of their first born, Ryan, using a hot air balloon theme. They wanted bright and bold colors and asked weeDECOR if we could do something custom. At weeDECOR, we jumped at the chance to help out these awesome parents-to-be. Our designers are always at the ready when special requests come in, and we know that only the best will do when creating that perfect space for your precious wee ones! Mom and dad prepared the walls by blanketing them in Benjamin Moore's Ice Blue from the Aura line. The choice of a softer paint color was brilliant for this project, as the white in the clouds and bold colors of the balloons are a great contrast to the muted tones of the background. Then, it was on to the mural design! In the center, we fashioned a blue and lavender balloon personalized with "Ryan" to serve as the focal point of the mural. We created balloons of various sizes to give the impression of depth in the room (notice how the smaller balloons seem further away than the larger ones?). We included lots of bold color combinations like orange/blue, yellow/green, red/white, and blue/yellow so that the balloons didn't fade into the paint color. But that's not all! Mom and dad wanted a little extra something. In came the embellishments! The clouds (part puffy, part effervescent, and 100% adorable) are creatively placed in front of some balloons and behind others to add to the three-dimensional feel of the design. We pulled some of the bright colors from the balloons to create some matching birdies and voila! A stunning wall decal mural that has it all: personality, exquisite detail, and fun, fun, fun! After adding in the darling Dylan bedding by Serena & Lily, the room was ready for baby's arrival. But what does Ryan think about all this? We're thrilled to report that mom and dad say, "Baby Ryan LOVES looking at his decals as he lays in his crib. We couldn't be happier with the finished product!" We couldn't be happier, either. Thanks for choosing weeDECOR! Loving the idea of a wall sticker mural? We have lots to choose from! If hot air balloons are striking your fancy, see our other hot air balloon wall decals. Our blog is chock-full of nursery decorating ideas for girls and boys if you're looking for a little inspiration.

Delicate butterflies, handsome owls, and more grace the organic cotton bedding with to-die-for softness. The clean, simple designs are reminiscent of some of our favorite weeDECOR wall stickers. Honeyami's Social Butterfly bedding for cribs and twin beds is positively swoon-worthy. Beautiful butterflies swoop and swirl over a polka dot backdrop that is both sweet and fun on the social butterfly twin duvet set. The palest of pink butterflies and polka dots offer a beautiful and interesting contrast to the gray grosgrain trim. This color combination, while unexpected, works beautifully together and shows just how much attention to detail is put into Honeyami's designs! We can just imagine some of our butterfly wall stickers hanging right above a crib or bed adorned with Honeyami's social butterfly bedding. Our personalized butterfly delight wall decal would also help carry the theme from the bed to the walls. Decorating for a boy? Honeyami's adorable night owl bedding would be perfect for your little man. We absolutely love the scalloped background on the night owl twin duvet set that echoes the design of the feathered friend himself. The night owl applique pillow is a fabulous finishing touch to your little boy's room. Offered in a soft blue,the traditional color and untraditional design complement each other so well. And speaking of complements, weeDECOR has some adorable owl wall stickers that would bring a special touch to the walls of your nursery or kid's room. Honeyami is certainly not a member of the all-style-no-substance club! Their products are made with 100% organic cotton that is free of harmful dyes and chemicals.

The nature wall decal mural by the changing table is perfectly placed, allowing her little one to have something beautiful and intriguing to look at during all of those diaper changes. Two happy owls perch on graceful tree branches while some birds in flight make their way to a peaceful resting spot. There's plenty of room for all sorts of friends on that towering tree! Across the room, Kellen's mom made his space personal and unique with our personalized owl wall sticker in pale blue. The colors look absolutely gorgeous and complement the other design elements so well! Mom found the super-fun rug at www.rugsusa.com and it's only a matter of time before little Kellen starts to pitter patter from dot to dot. Mom kept the owl theme going in the crib with some adorable crib bedding by Dwell (one of our favorite designers of modern, fabulous nursery bedding). So that other areas of the room didn't feel left out, Kellen's mom added some of the pieces from the nature wall decal mural to other walls. A single, sweet bird at the end of the crib watches over little Kellen when he sleeps, and yet another uses the photo collage as a landing place. This room is such a fantastic example of a mom that uses the versatility of our designs in unexpected ways. She sticks to her chosen theme without overdoing it. Great job, mom! [caption id="attachment_4669" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="weeDECOR's wall stickers make this room twice as nice!"]personalized wall stickers. personalized wall decals, owl wall stickers, bird wall stickers[/caption] This Quebec mom embellishes her kids' walls with several different weeDECOR wall stickers, using color and birds to pull it all together. Aiden and Zachary share a room, but each sweet boy gets his own personal space thanks to the personalized dot arch wall decal over each bed. These wall stickers really make a statement and leave nothing to chance as to who sleeps where! We love how this mom incorporated birds into the room with two distinct, fabulous designs. On the left, the bird branch wall decal in yellow is a cheerful, charming addition to Zachary's side of the room. We're sure Aiden delights in gazing up at the owl branch wall decal that hangs over his bed. What an adorable, fun room! Thanks for sharing, mom! [caption id="attachment_4670" align="alignnone" width="480" caption="This mom makes Connor's space his very own with our personalized solo owl wall sticker."]owl wall sticker. owl wall decal. [/caption] The bold, bright colors of this personalized solo owl wall sticker add just the right punch of color to Connor's nursery. A sweet, solitary owl sits contentedly on the graceful arm of a tree and keeps a close eye on this baby boy. This particular design comes in several different colors so you are sure to find a good fit for your nursery. This New York City mom selected navy/pale blue...just perfect for a little boy! She further customized her design by spelling out Connor's name with our "Smiley" type style. We hope this personalized wall decal makes Connor and his parents smile right along with those letters! We love it!

The browns and greens in this design look fantastic against the wall color. This mom used Valspar's Betsy Ross House Moss as a great neutral color for the room. The dark walnut color in Graco's Lauren Changing Table looks so rich against the muted walls. Unlike some of the other owls seen above, this group is fast asleep on a tree branch. It's hard work being so adorable! weeDECOR offers a huge variety of owl wall stickers in our collection. You'll find owls in branches, owls in trees, and all-alone owls to adorn the walls of your nursery or kid's room.

Turtles and Owls and Whales, Oh My! October 25 2011

We can't get enough of these adorable rooms! Moms and dads across the country are using weeDECOR wall stickers as part of their animal-themed nurseries and kids' rooms, and we have some great photos that show how to adorn your walls with animal friends. [caption id="attachment_4655" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="It's a turtle parade!"]turtle wall stickers. turtle wall decals. nursery decor.[/caption] Look at these turtles strut their stuff! A New York mom tells us, "I decided on turtle theme because I love turtles and found these colored turtle wall decals from weeDECOR that were perfect. The bedding from Pottery Barn Kids came with a turtle fitted sheet. The colors of the bedding matched the decals I purchased! Fabulous!" It IS fabulous! Wow! The Today's Baby Augusta Elite Convertible Crib in cherry finish has clean lines that add to the contemporary feel of the room. We love how the bold colors of the turtles pop against a sky blue backdrop. This mom decided to run the turtle parade in a continuous loop along all four walls of the nursery. Too, too cute! [caption id="attachment_4653" align="alignnone" width="480" caption="A nature wall decal mural is used to brighten up white walls."]nature wall decal mural. nature wall decal sticker. animal wall decal. animal wall sticker.[/caption] [caption id="attachment_4654" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="We love how the owl and bird wall stickers seem right at home on this playroom wall."]owl wall decals. owl wall stickers. bird wall decal. bird wall sticker. playroom decor. nursery decor.[/caption] Any renters out there? We know just how frustrating it can be when you want to liven up your dwelling but can't make any major changes. Hey, we can help with that! A mom in Kansas discovered how to use weeDECOR wall decals to embellish the walls of her daughter's playrooom. She explains, "We are renting, so I wanted to do something to "jazz up" our little girl's playroom without permanently changing the walls- enter weeDECOR! The fantastic staff helped me modify the colors since I wanted to add more color to the room and not necessarily stick to a particular palette; the paint is so pale that I wanted different colors." This  is a mom who knows what she wants, and at weeDECOR, we pride ourselves in offering the perfect wall decor to match your personal style. When she told us of her color dilemma, we created some custom colors to add the visual punch she was aiming for in the playroom. The new colors turned out to be exactly what she wanted. Happy mom, happy weeDECOR. The nature wall decal mural offered the wow factor and versatility that she was looking for in playroom decor. The towering tree graces one wall, and other pieces were used to embellish those fabulous alphabet flash cards by Mark Fisher. Mom used a clever combination of string and clothespins to display the alphabet in a unique way that minimizes wall damage. With some savvy use of everyday household items and wall-friendly decals from weeDECOR, she is sure to get back that coveted security deposit! We love it all! [caption id="attachment_4656" align="alignnone" width="426" caption="This mom found the perfect embellishment to her crib bedding in our friendly whale wall stickers."]whale wall stickers. Whale wall decals. nursery decor. [/caption] A Brooklyn mom found the most amazing accents to decorate her baby boys' nursery. She writes, "As soon as we found out we were having a boy we knew we wanted to embrace everything BLUE! It first started off with finding the perfect bedding...we've always been fans of Pottery Barn Kids so it was love at first sight when we saw the JACKSON themed bedding set!" We share her love of whales! There is something so charming about them when used in nursery decor. And what little one is fascinated by undersea creatures? Once mom and dad decided on the bedding and furniture, it was time to find some cute embellishments to complete her nursery. Mom explains, "The cute chubby whales were so lovable that we went all out! We paired the Jackson bedding with their (Pottery Barn's) whale mobile and whale wicker toy basket. The last and finishing touch was finding whale decals. Your store had exactly what we imagined. We got the large whale in matte navy and the small whales in light blue. It is truly the perfect finishing touch. Everyone that has seen our set up loves the whale themed look! Thanks for giving us "icing on the cake" for our crib set!" We couldn't be prouder to be a part of this room. The whale wall decals look fabulous above the crib, and the colors are an exact match! It sounds like these parents had a whale of a time creating an incredible nursery. Great job! Inspired to turn your little one's nursery into an animal kingdom? Check out our animal decals here. We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Take a peek at this gorgeous nursery bedding by Peek a Boo Rooms! October 14 2011

[caption id="attachment_4627" align="alignnone" width="507" caption="Learn how to embellish the walls of this nursery with wall decals by weeDECOR"]peek a boo rooms. nursery decor. giraffe decor. nursery bedding[/caption] Peek a Boo Rooms is quickly becoming one of our favorite places to find unique, art-based décor for nurseries and kids’ rooms. Known for soft, muted colors and playful designs, the bedding and room décor products at Peek a Boo Rooms are both luxurious and timeless. We particularly love the Get Happy Giraffe collection. Bright turquoise accents really stand out against a soft, graceful kiwi green backdrop.  Peek a Boo Rooms uses only the most luxurious machine-washable fabrics that are as pleasing to the eye as they are to the touch. The four-piece bedding set includes a bumper, crib sheet, crib dust ruffle and blanket. You can up the cute factor by adding embroidered giraffes to each piece or keep it clean and simple without. And speaking of upping the cute factor, weeDECOR’s personalized giraffe wall decal growth chart would be an adorable complement to a room outfitted with Peek a Boo Rooms’ Get Happy Giraffe bedding collection. At a towering 73 inches high, the only thing imposing about this friendly animal companion is his size. Use this impressive giraffe wall decal growth chart to keep track of your little guy’s height over the years.  Before you know it, your baby boy will be 73 inches high himself! Hard to believe, isn’t it? Looking for a giraffe wall sticker that is not so close to actual size? You might want to try our giraffe wall decal instead.  This handsome animal friend is 13 inches high, but still makes quite a statement.  Offered in 9 different colors, we think that apple green, sage green, or brown would look great with the Get Happy Giraffe set.

Styles run the gamut from retro owls to modern, organic gray and lime geometric print crib bedding. We’ve chosen our three favorites here which all consistently look classy and stylish with a unique, modern twist. We love the juxtaposition of their classic paisley print crib bedding in modern nursery colors of spa blue and taupe. What a clever combination of classic style with a modern twist! The colors lend themselves to a tranquil and relaxing room perfect for mom and baby with the bonus of soft touches of chenille and subtle sea breeze blue stripes. Simple bows on the bumper further bring the feel of zen to the design. We are also a fan of their pink and taupe leopard crib bedding. Who knew leopard could be classy? This pink and taupe leopard has elegance abound in this unique bedding set with satin ruffles to add a bit of frill for fun. The satin ruffled bumper is complimented with a peek-a-boo crib skirt featuring pink and taupe leopard twill and punctuated with decadent-looking satin bows. Finally, we applaud their pink and taupe damask crib bedding which helps soften the damask print that sometimes can be too stark for a nursery. The subtle shades of pale pink and taupe are a perfect way to tone down the pattern making it perfect for an ultra-feminine, baby girl nursery. The pattern is coupled with the luxurious feel of chenille and satin. The added touch of ruffles furthers the feminine feel of this baby girl nursery.

Stylish, Blue Modern Nursery Bedding by Annette Tatum December 16 2010

The color of choice for the classic nursery. Perfect for boy's baby room and a delightful accent for a girl’s nursery, blue baby rooms never goes out of style. To ensure that, Annette Tatum’s line of blue baby bedding uses hues that are a touch edgier than what you might find at classics like Pottery Barn Kids or Serena & Lily. She gives blue a fresh look and coordinates with contemporary colors to help you design your stylish and modern blue baby nursery. For example, in her “Bingo Breeze” pattern of blue and orange polka dot bedding, Tatum introduces a tasteful orange that pops against a pale blue, white, and medium blue. We might add that this blue and orange baby bedding is the perfect match for our modern nature wall decal mural when you are ready to think about nursery wall décor. For her other modern nursery color palettes incorporating blue see our collage above. Starting clockwise from upper left find "Bingo Breeze" followed by the “Forest Whisper” pattern. Forest Whisper baby bedding features leaves in light blue and beige with light olive green branches. We love how this color combination mixes several colors, yet maintains a gender neutral feel. If you seek, modern geometric shapes in your blue baby bedding, see Tatum’s “Sprout” in Whisper blue. This palette brings in various modern shades of blue to increase visual complexity. Sprout also comes in Peony for crib bedding with a touch of pink mixed with a dusty blue. The pattern is extra cute as it looks like modern sprouting flowers and vines in a modern, coordinating color palette. These three piece crib bedding sets include a reversible crib bumper with piping, cotton crib sheet and tailored crib skirt with kick pleat. Coordinating items are available in many of these sets include a reversible crib quilt, window panels with pom pom trim, valance with pom pom trim, a changing pad cover, fabric by the yard, boudoir pillow and neckroll pillow. The crib bedding is made from 100% cotton poplin. You can purchase all of these crib bedding sets and get free shipping from Layla Grace.

This Charmingly Simple PBK Baby Bedding (on Sale!) Piqued our Interest November 10 2010

[caption id="attachment_3978" align="alignnone" width="420" caption="Light Blue & White Modern Baby Bedding from Pottery Barn Kids"]Light Blue & White Modern Baby Bedding from Pottery Barn Kids[/caption] [caption id="attachment_3979" align="alignnone" width="462" caption="Personalized Bear Wall Decal by weeDECOR"]Personalized Bear Wall Decal by weeDECOR[/caption] [caption id="attachment_3980" align="alignnone" width="480" caption="Classic Pique Baby Bassinet by Pottery Barn Kids"]Classic Pique Baby Bassinet by Pottery Barn Kids[/caption] We like simply-designed baby bedding because it helps baby’s room feel clean without sacrificing versatility in the rest of your nursery decor. Though try as we may, it’s hard to keep baby’s room uncluttered with all the things you need to keep handy (i.e. diapers, wipes, washcloths, clothes). Simply designed crib bedding helps distract your eye from the visual clutter that can accumulate in your nursery. Pottery Barn Kids has that perfect baby bedding set if you want a simple, clean look.  It’s their Pique Nursery Bedding set and it comes appropriately colored for baby boys or girls. Better yet, it’s now on sale. Their baby boy pique bedding comes in light blue or navy blue. Their baby girl pique bedding set comes in light pink or bright pink.  And, for a gender neutral nursery choose from chocolate brown or light green. The light pink, bright pink, and light green also comes with a lovely scalloped design. Dress it up or dress it down with either modern or classic accents. We can envision simple accents of teddy bears on the classic side.  How stunning would our personalized bear wall decal look with this bedding? If your style is more modern, consider more funky, geometrical patterns like ovals to soften the angularity of the colored piping. The set is $149 and includes bumper, pleated crib skirt and white fitted crib sheet. It’s only available online or via catalog from Pottery Barn Kids. And, you can purchase coordinating quilt or pillow sham separately. We also cannot resist their pique baby bassinet bedding. Not quite as practical a purchase as we normally like to recommend. But, the bassinet and bedding set are just too precious not to point out. See our other articles for more baby bedding ideas such as this nature themed baby bedding also from Pottery Barn Kids

For a baby girl, Baby Star mixes two unique prints to create Pink Flutter, a cute design of dark brown and pink modern butterfly bedding and single file pattern dots unite for a contemporary, stylish feel.

So Soft, So Modern Baby Bedding from Olio April 07 2010

We love brands that have a design point of view and Oilo’s point of view shines through in every one of their products. Oilo strives to turn your nursery into the most comfortable, clean, and carefree sanctuary in your home with fresh colors, stylish design, and imaginative motifs for your baby’s room. Oilo’s name comes from Hawaiian roots as Hawaiian word "lio" means small sprout and "ho’oilo" means the cool, rainy season. One of the things we most notice about Olio is that all of their designs have a softness to them – maybe inspired by the softness of Hawaiian rain. For example, this beautiful Raindrop, aqua baby bedding is embellished with delicate pellets of raindrops on its bumper. Soft aqua and white striped crib sheets bring visual interest into the mix. Even though it is of a bolder cobalt blue, the high contrast of the bright blue and white wheel motif crib bedding is softened with the roundness of the wheels that look so cute rolling along the crib mattress. And, this taupe and white modern baby bedding set is decorated with cobblestones with soft rounded edges. You can sense the smoothness of the cobblestones with your eyes. All of these sets have a feel that is modern, clean, and serene – great ways to describe your nursery decor. We also like that all of these three baby bedding sets have gorgeous matching pendant lamps. You can find the baby bedding sets and matching pendant lamps at 2 Sweet Sisters who is having a promotion (spend $250 and get a $25 gift certificate, spend $500 and get a $75 gift certificate, spend $1,000 and get a $150).

[caption id="attachment_2268" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="Animal Applique Toast & White Baby Bedding -- RHBC Spring Collection"]Animal Applique Toast & White Baby Bedding -- RHBC Spring Collection[/caption] Breaking away from their classic stance of simple stripes and polka dots, check out Restoration Hardware Baby & Child’s delightful spring nursery bedding collection. A bit more contemporary and a lot more playful, choose from ruffles, flowers, elephants and more. With unbeatable Restoration Hardware quality, find modern bedding colors like lovely lavender and soft brown toast. For example, this imported, Italian made lavender floral print baby bedding with stripes is designed with muted lavender, taupe, and bisque and is the perfect modern color palette for a classic styled baby girl nursery. The baby bedding set comes with coordinating bumper, crib skirt, sheet, and sham. For a slightly bolder look, this European cherry blossom baby bedding set comes with a pop of bright pink. Made in Portugal, it, too, comes with bumper, crib skirt, crib sheets, and shams.  We think the crib skirt is particularly precious with cherry blossoms on branches dancing along the edge. We also love the texture of this coordinating, wool felt cherry blossom pillow cover. The dainty flowers pop off the throw pillow and bring dimension to the room. At weeDECOR, we have a cherry blossom wall decal collection that would accent this bedding beautifully. The clean, modern look of our cherry blossom tree wall decal echoes the minimalist-but-marvelous feel of the pieces in Restoration Hardware's collection. This tree would look fabulous next to the crib, branches outreached with billowing blooms. Our personalized cherry blossom branch wall decal would be an adorable accoutrement as well. What better way to pronounce this space as her very own! For the baby boy, this animal appliqué crib bedding set is of white lions, elephants, and giraffes sewn onto light brown cotton sateen. The crib skirt on this set is gorgeous as the undulating soft brown and white peek through the curves. For ideas on matching wall décor see our other articles on animal wall decals, cherry blossom wall hangings, and lavender-colored wall clocks.

Founder Mary Lou Cothran’s distress over mass produced designs that all looked the same served as the inspiration for Javis Davis’ custom designed baby bedding.  Javis Davis has at least 100 fabrics (by our count) of unique fabrics from famous textile designers like Amy Butler and Joel Dewberry. Choose from modern, vintage, and classic styles as well as pretty patterns and themes like toile, damask, paisley, polka dot, floral, animals, robots, cowboys, fire trucks, and cars. The options are endless! And, what could be more fun than their online design studio which gives you enough flexibility to play, but not so much that you get overwhelmed.    To use the online design studio, you first customize your baby bedding type. For example, do you want a ruffled or pleated crib skirt? Then, choose among fabric collections designed to mix and match. Select a pattern to apply to “outside crib bumper”, and bingo - see it applied to a real looking crib bumper.  You can choose the fabric for your bumper ties, crib sheets, crib skirts, pleat inserts, and more.  When you’re satisfied with your design, choose from coordinating decorative throw pillows or blankets to match.  And, don’t forget extra crib sheets. No need to worry if you get stuck. Javis Davis puts inspiring baby bedding sets together for you. They also offer free design or in-person consultations at their physical design studio in Fairhope, AL. We took a whirl and came up with some fun combinations using their Babushka Doll Pattern and mixing it with teals and whites. We tried their Ivy League print of navy, muted green, and white with cute decorative sailboat anchors as bumper décor for a nautical theme.  And, we played with their contemporary-looking Twister Ice Blue fabrics with polka dots and were thrilled with the results. Surprisingly, orders only take between 5 days and 2 weeks which I don’t know about you, but is faster than I get from lots of retailers with product in stock let alone custom made. Javis Davis also does customized kids bedding and oh-so-cute American doll-sized bedding to match.

Be Bold! Bright, Modern Baby Bedding for the Hip Kid February 25 2010

A few of our favs are this “Urban Crib Bedding” in aqua and yellow.  This three piece crib bedding comes with quilt, crib sheet, and bumper that converts into a floor mat (which is super clever since we all know the bumper is useless after a year).  It’s decorated with screen printing of an urban scene of buildings, trees, butterflies, and people. This bedding would look great with a white colored crib as shown here. For more yellow, this Daisy baby bedding set by Supernatural is also fun.  A bright, yellow-gold crib bumper and quilt decorated with daisies pop against a hot pink sheet – perfect for that stylish baby girl. For more aqua and a touch of bright green, this modern Alphabet crib bedding set also by Supernatural is a fresh take on the classic alphabet theme. This bedding set is perfect for a gender neutral nursery. Finally, this coral, tan, and white contemporary bird themed crib bedding set embellished with hand-screen painted birds is a bright and cheery combo for either gender. Spunky Sprout, caters to moms seeking modern, hip, and trendy kid products that fit into their equally modern and hip fashionable homes.  Even if you don’t live in a Manhattan loft, their collection of baby bedding, furniture, lighting, rugs, wall art, and wall decals are fun to browse and you might find that perfect decorative item you can’t get at Target or Pottery Barn Kids. Spunky Sprout is also an ardent supporter of Reach the Children, providing underprivileged kids in Africa opportunities for self-reliance by strengthening families and communities.

Soothing & Stylish, Italian Designed Baby Nursery Bedding from Picci February 20 2010

[caption id="attachment_1978" align="aligncenter" width="360" caption="Picci's "Peter" Baby Bedding in Green & Brown"]Picci's "Peter" Baby Bedding in Green & Brown[/caption] [caption id="attachment_1979" align="aligncenter" width="360" caption="Picci "Hippy Flowers" Baby Bedding in Pink & White"]Picci "Hippy Flowers" Baby Bedding in Pink & White[/caption] [caption id="attachment_1980" align="aligncenter" width="360" caption="Picci's "Ocean Blue" Baby Bedding in Dusty Blue & Beige"]Picci's "Ocean Blue" Baby Bedding[/caption] Picci baby bedding is for the contemporary mom who appreciates classic nursery colors, but with a modern design touch. Picci uses soft, tonal colors and integrates clean, modern design elements to create their signature nursery look. Founded 35 years ago in Florence, Italy by Paola Cherubini, Picci categorizes its crib bedding as cotton, silk, organic, and contemporary.  We especially like their contemporary designs because they feel so…well, Italian.  Cool, modern patterns softened with nursery color palettes bring together the traditional with the modern as the company succeeds in their attempts to “evoke the romance of Tuscany in style and design”. Their green and white “Peter” set is stunning.  Featuring contemporary green daisies and a solid brown for the bumper ties, crib bumper, and quilt edging, this is a nice bedding set for a gender neutral or neutral colored nursery.  The Peter set would match a white or light oak-colored crib.  A light colored wood would do wonders in bringing out the neutral tones of the brown and green. For a girl’s room, this “Hippy Flowers” floral crib bedding is oh-so-cute.  Daisy designs dance across soft pale pink cotton with coordinating pieces in pink toned stripes and solids.  This would match a dark brown crib as shown here for a more classic look.  Or, go with a white crib to give a more airy feel to your baby girl’s nursery. Our favorite is this dusty blue and beige bedding called “Blue Ocean” which lends a spin on a modern polka dot nursery with soft, playful blue circles embellishing the pale beige fabric. This baby bedding would work with any colored baby furniture and we love the idea of using a blue painted accent wall to help the bedding pop as shown here.  To recreate this look, try Land of Nod's She Sells Sea Shells no VOC blue wall paint which looks to be a close match.  Each baby bedding set comes with crib bumper, comforter, sheet, and dust ruffle and is made of all natural fabrics. See our other modern baby bedding finds and our recommendations for the best shades of blue wall paint for a nursery.

Exquisite Gender Neutral Baby Bedding from Serena & Lily February 03 2010

[caption id="attachment_1817" align="aligncenter" width="360" caption="Marlo Neutral Nursery Bedding from Serena & Lily"]Marlo Neutral Nursery Bedding from Serena & Lily[/caption] [caption id="attachment_1818" align="aligncenter" width="361" caption="Marlo Neutral Nursery Baby Bumper from Serena & Lily"]Marlo Neutral Nursery Baby Bumper from Serena & Lily[/caption]
You can always count on Serena & Lily to bring exquisite style and design to nursery décor.  Their new Marlo nursery bedding collection is no exception. Perfect for the gender neutral nursery, the Marlo baby bedding package is part of Serena & Lily’s Heirloom Collection and is decorated with birds, butterflies, leaves, and nature-inspired silk embroidery. The crib bedding set comes with a bumper embroidered on both sides with white ties and a zippered slipcover for easy washing, a fitted white crib sheet of white 230-thread-count, 100% Egyptian cotton, and a single box-pleated skirt with an embroidered band. Best with a white crib as pictured here or a crib with espresso-colored wood to get that “pop”, you won’t need much room décor as the bedding can stand on its own - maybe some simple wall hangings, wall decals, or throw pillows.  A glider or white rocking chair would work nicely.  If you’d like to add some color, the palette can easily absorb it.  Consider pale pinks, blues, and lavenders.  Or, consider some spring-y greens to play off the nature theme and to keep it more gender neutral. We should warn you this bedding set is quite expensive - the kind of expensive that necessitates saving it for generations to come or selling to a consignment store when your baby moves into a toddler room. See our other articles for more nursery bedding or other gender neutral decor.  

Refreshing, New Owl & Paper Doll Nursery Decor by Dwell January 27 2010

[caption id="attachment_1763" align="aligncenter" width="318" caption="Owl & Tree Nursery Decor by Dwell"]Owl & Tree Nursery Decor from Dwell[/caption] [caption id="attachment_1762" align="aligncenter" width="318" caption="Blue Owl & Tree Baby Bedding by Dwell Studio"]New Owl & Tree Baby Bedding from Dwell Studio[/caption] [caption id="attachment_1764" align="aligncenter" width="318" caption="Paper Doll Nursery Decor for a Baby Girl's Nursery by Dwell"]Paper Doll Nursery Decor for a Baby Girl's Nursery from Dwell[/caption] [caption id="attachment_1765" align="aligncenter" width="318" caption="Pink Paper Doll Baby Bedding by Dwell Studio"]Pink Paper Doll Baby Bedding from Dwell[/caption] We love Dwell Studio.  We can’t help it.  Their decor aesthetic is so fun, so refreshing.  It is modern, but not so modern that it doesn’t work for your home.  And, Dwell Studio’s new spring line does it again.  At the top of our list of favorites are this blue and brown owl themed baby bedding and this paper doll themed crib bedding for a baby girl.  In the owl nursery décor set, we love the signature Dwell Studio color combinations of modern dusty blue, mocha brown, grey, and olive green.  Curious blue owls perch on the branches of modern trees decorate the crib bumper and are accented with contemporary geometric shapes on the 100% cotton fitted sheets.  Classic, yet trendy, your baby will be sleeping next to cute owls in high style. Their paper doll nursery décor setis equally fresh.  Pale pink, pale blue, mocha brown, beige, and bright pink dolls stand hand-in-hand.  We can envision some very cute wall décor playing off the paper doll motif (stencils, wall decals, hanging wall mobiles, etc.).  We like how each girl has a bit of a different hair style or dress.  Intended or not, the implicit message – no matter our differences in color or in style, we can all get along – is not lost on us.  How nice to bring a baby girl into the world on that note? The crib bedding sets are 100% cotton and come with crib bumper, fitted sheet, baby blanket, and crib skirt and you can find them at Giggle. For wall accents, see our other articles on owl wall décor, owl wall decals, and wall stencils.

Cute as a Petunia Turquoise or Pink & Brown Baby Bedding January 16 2010

[caption id="attachment_1665" align="aligncenter" width="358" caption="Petunia Pickle Bottom Sea Blue & Yellow Crib Bedding"]Petunia Pickle Bottom Sea Blue & Yellow Crib Bedding[/caption] [caption id="attachment_1666" align="aligncenter" width="358" caption="Petunia Picke Bottom Pink & Brown Crib Bedding"]Petunia Picke Bottom Pink & Brown Crib Bedding[/caption] Petunia Pickle Bottom earned a place in our hearts with their fantabulous diaper bags. Yes, we know fantabulous is not a word.  But, fabulous was much too mundane.  As they put it, “the Petunia Pickle Bottom line has shown a fearless sense of style distinguishing itself from the once dreaded diaper bag”.  We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. You may not know that Petunia Pickle Bottom has expanded their “bold lines, daring colors, and darling designer details” to baby bedding.  Now, you can get that same bold style and fabulous fabrics they use in their bags in baby bedding sets. Petunia Pickle Bottom’s exquisite use of silk brocades, hand-woven tweeds, chenilles, velvets, and embroidery will give you a one-of-a-kind, stylish look for your baby’s nursery. We have two favorites within their crib bedding collection.  The first is the Sea Glass Roll aptly named for its stunning shade of turquoise blue accented with Ancient Asian-inspired saffron flower medallion patterns. The set comes with a bumper with box-pleated corners and brocade ties, box-pleated crib skirt, a double-sided velour/linen and Brocade linen blanket, fitted crib sheet, and throw pillow.  Because the color is so powerful, this bedding would look striking in a nursery with white or pale yellow painted walls with turquoise accents.  The beautiful aqua blue shades would pop against those light colored walls.  Consider putting the throw pillow on a light colored glider.  Or, find multi-colored wall art with a touch of turquoise in it to bring a bit more kick to the overall color palette.  Joo Joo Baby has some cute simple wall panels, or go more complex with a vividly colored wall hanging in the kid’s room theme of your choice. Our other favorite is their Zinnia Roll named after the long-stemmed, brightly colored flower. The Zinnia crib bedding set comes with the same elements as the Sea Glass Roll, but is of a chocolate brown / dusty pink color with European-inspired starburst designs.  Delightful for a baby girl’s nursery, decorate the rest of the room in a contrast of colors.  As an idea, paint the walls a dusty pink and accent the room with other chocolate brown and pink decorative items.  Bring in a cream, pale beige, or pale pink for lighter contrast or a darker rose should you prefer darker contrast.  Be careful not to use too much brown on the walls when decorating around either set as it can make the room feel smaller and darker.

They sell your standard products like cribs and bedding (but, with a modern flair) as well as funky owl toy boxes, modern kids' armoires, and MOMA quality children’s wall art. We are inspired by their wide selection of bright modern designs and smart contemporary products.  We’ve chosen to feature Design Public’s bedding selection as it is such fun to browse the styles and colors.  They carry popular contemporary baby brands like DwellStudio, Area, Amenity, Olli and Lime, and Q Collection Junior. Take a peek at the DwellStudio bedding above – a stylish and fun modern take on polka dots and stripes.  A gorgeous chocolate brown and white color combo makes this bedding set pop against a white crib and mocha painted walls and would be perfect for the modern boy nursery.  Bring a bit more playfulness into the baby’s room by adding animal wall decals, wall hangings, pillows, and other animal-themed decorative elements. This organic bedding set from Q Collection Junior called "Sky" is of beautiful pale blue elephants and orange and cream ornamentation.  This set would also be great for a baby boy nursery given the fun elephant motif and blue and orange.  We love the packaging of this set.  No plastic! And, the Amenity nursery pattern called “Meadow” depicts cute bunnies running through a tranquil green grassy meadow. Great for a gender neutral or nature themed baby room, this organic percale cotton or fleece set comes in an orange, green, cream, and chocolate brown. All crib sets above are four pieces including crib sheet, bumper, crib skirt, and blanket.  And, Design Public offers many of the matching accessories (i.e. wall art, pillows, and throw blankets). Thanks, Design Public, for helping us keep our modern nursery decorating ahead of the times.
